Soulscape has received three big award nominations so far this year – we’re very grateful!
Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service
This prestigious award is “the highest award given to volunteer groups across the UK to recognise exceptional service within their communities.” We were delighted to be nominated this year, and even more delighted to get shortlisted and make it through to the final stage.
We didn’t quite win, but it was much-deserved recognition for our army of volunteers who tirelessly go into schools to make space for young people. Without our volunteers, we wouldn’t achieve anything!
Reading Cultural Awards 2019 – Best Education Project.
Our newest project, Give and Take, was nominated for the Reading Cultural Awards this year. Along with Reading Rep, who worked with us on the project, we were thrilled, as the creative arts are such a huge part of the way we work with young people.
350 charities were nominated for the Cultural Awards, and Give and Take ended up being one of only three finalists for Best Education Project.
Love Britain + Ireland Award for Youth and Children’s Work
Premier run the Love Britain + Ireland Awards to recognise and celebrate Christian community action initiatives. The Youth and Children’s Work category is “awarded to an outstanding project that is transforming the lives of children and young people in a local community.”
Soulscape falls in the London and South East region, so there were a lot of amazing, inspiring people and projects at the regional awards ceremony on 2 July. We were amazed and honoured to be named the regional finalist!
The national finals are in October, so watch this space. The category winner gets a £5,000 media package from Premier to help promote their work.
